From Allison Aller, designer: "I have begun doing a series of "Home Portraits", integrating photos printed onto fabric with embroidery and embellishment. "Barbara's Door", 13" X 18", was a gift for my friend Barbara Curiel, an English professor at Humboldt State University. The quilt arrived at her home right after she and her husband Michael returned from their honeymoon! I had asked her for a quotation to embroider on the piece, and she sent me this, from Emily Dickenson: "Where thou art, that is home." Isn't that lovely? LFNT-100/25mm col 3 and LFNT 101/38mm col 3 Incidentally, I will be teaching a class in Home Portraits at the Victorian Stitchery Retreat in Witchita, Kansas in November 2011. http://www.valeriebothell.com/retreat.php And please visit my blog at http://alliesinstitches.blogspot.com/" Lovely work, Allie!
